I-864 sponsor and Co sponsor

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi! I have been living in the UK for the past 6 years and was a stay at home mom. We moved back to the US in August 2014 and I haven't found work yet. My question is when filling out my I-864 I claimed myself and my children and basically $0 for everything else since I haven't worked since 2008. My mom is the Co sponsor and she listed just her and my husband. Is this correct? Should she claim all of us since we are living with her? She hasn't claimed any of us on her taxes. Thank you! Melody

no, each of you fill out an i864 as primary sponsor

on yours, you put your family and $0 income and a letter attached explaining why you didn't have to file taxes

your mom files another i864 as your only joint sponsor, she lists her own household, plus the beneficiary, meaning herself and the beneficiary,

households are separate even though you live in the same house
